Bookshop

 
The society runs a bookshop which stocks a large selection of geology books and which is open after the society’s indoor meetings to allow members to browse and make purchases. The following are some of the most popular titles in the bookshop's stock.
 
The Madeira and Fife and Angus field guides can be purchased by post from the society; instructions for doing this are given after the details of the guides.

Supplement to Madeira guide

Since the publication of this guide in 2008, the need has arisen to update some of the information contained in it. The great storm of February 2010 changed some of the topography, including the area of Porto da Cruz, and in the same year a new geological map of the island was published along with a revision of the stratigraphy. These and other alterations and additions are reflected in a supplement to the guide, which was up-to-date as of June 2016. This supplement can be viewed and downloaded here.
